Kootenai County-Wide Meetings Week of 1/1

Updated: Jan 3

Kootenai County

Happy New Year!

Happy new year to the greatest group of Spectators! I am hoping 2024 is better than 2023 for many reasons, but most of all is that I hope 2024 brings more hours in the day to give you as much government information as possible. Between working part-time, homeschooling, and child sports, I'm sad that daily posts have fallen by the wayside. In this new year I promise to work better to give you the information you need to be a well-informed people. If you want to be included in the daily conversation about our local government, head to the Kootenai County Spectator Telegram chat here.

Love you guys and I hope you had a very merry holiday season. Here's to 2024!


A weekly snapshot of meetings throughout the county that could affect our daily lives. These include city council, county commissioner, and school board meetings, as well as any non-partisan, elected-position meetings that the public should be following. Any agenda topics called out are the ones I believe to be hot topics and could have a long-lasting effect on our community. If there is no agenda listed, it's most likely because it's farther out than the 24 hours advance notice they are required to give. I try to capture as many meetings as possible, but if you see something glaringly absent, please let me know. The purpose of this post is to give you a head's up about the meetings happening each week and give you an opportunity to attend in person. If you can't attend in person, most of the time the meetings will be available to view live online or after the fact, so that you may still feel up to date on the topics at hand. Starting to attend meetings, commenting on livestream threads, and emailing your representatives thoughts about the subjects they covered are all ways you can get involved in the local political process. Thanks!
